Fan the flames: A teen goddess fires up her search for love and family in this sequel to Wildefire.Ashline Wilde may have needed school to learn that she is actually a reincarnated goddess, but she’s ready to move beyond books. She leaves her California boarding school behind and makes for Miami, where she meets a new group of deities and desperately seeks her sister Rose, the goddess of war. But she’s also looking for love—because even though her romance with Cole had to be snuffed, Ash is a volcano goddess—and she doesn’t get burned.

This sequel to the edgy and action-packed Wildefire continues a fiery drama on an immortal scale.

(MY THOUGHTS)
 Embers and Echoes is absolutely amazing. I knew Karsten Knight was an awesome writer after I read Wildefire, but Knight totally took me to a higher level of his awesomeness in the sequel Embers and Echoes. I thought I knew a little where Knight was going to take his sequel, but I was wrong. Knight definitely blew me away with the storyline in Embers and Echoes, and one of the mind blowing was Colt Halliday, yes, notice I said his whole name. ( full names are used when you really want to do bodily harm to a person) I fell in love the gorgeous forest ranger Colt right along with Ashline in Wildefire, but this time around, Jerk is way too nice of a name for Colt. Yep! I love it when Ashline told Colt "Come near me again, and we'll find out what else you can regrow." She pointed at his crotch. Ashline is a girl after my own heart when she says this to Colt.Thank you Mr. Knight for Ashline, she is a wonderful character!

Ashline is going to really have a rough time with love and fighting for her life, she will find out who Colt really is, plus trying to get Eve out of the Cloak's Netherworld and losing more of her friend, old ones and new ones. And she also will have to fight four sadistic gods and goddess's to get her little sister Rose back, with one of the sadistic goddess being Lily. Ashline has her hands full and on top of everything she is remember her past lives.

Ashline has to go to Miami for her fight and rescue mission and she meets Wesley who's the Aztec god of night and Aurora who's the Roman goddess of the dawn. Wes and Aurora offer their myth's powers to help Ash, but it clear that Wes is offering more than just his power to Ash and Ash is not refusing Wes. But Ash is starting to realize love for her really stinks when it comes to romance with gorgeous myth gods.

Embers and Echoes is an amazing sequel to Wildefire with thrilling action and chilling heart-break for Ashline with her sister, her friend, her enemies and her love life. I highly recommend Embers and Echoes as a must read beautiful kick-ass heroine you will love and be rooting for.

                                        Embers and Echoes Excerpt

MEET THORNE
Ash wiggled her arm to see how tight Thorne’s grip was and whether she had enough leeway to escape. “Riveting as this lecture has been, it’s past my curfew.” She raised her champagne flute in a salute to him. “Now it’s time for me to return to my boyfriend.”
Thorne shook his head. “No. Now it’s time for us to stop pretending we’re mortals.”
She tried to lurch away, but Thorne caught her by the loose material of her dress, and he pushed her roughly through the archway of the grotto. Once inside, he slammed her hard up against the wall so that the sharp coral fingers jabbed into her back, and the breath deflated out of her on impact. With him pressing her up against the wall, they were both hidden from any passersby.
Ash smashed her champagne flute against the coral. The glass and champagne littered the ground, but she had the daggerlike broken stem pointed at the side of his neck in a second. “Unless you can summon wind in these close quarters,” she growled, “I suggest you back off before I shish-kebab you and serve you as an appetizer to the party guests.”

Wildefire (Wildefire, #1)

Wildefire (Wildefire #1)
 
Every flame begins with a spark. Ashline Wilde is having a rough sophomore year. She’s struggling to find her place as the only Polynesian girl in school, her boyfriend just cheated on her, and now her runaway sister, Eve, has decided to barge back into her life. When Eve’s violent behavior escalates and she does the unthinkable, Ash transfers to a remote private school nestled in California’s redwoods, hoping to put the tragedy behind her. But her fresh start at Blackwood Academy doesn’t go as planned. Just as Ash is beginning to enjoy the perks of her new school—being captain of the tennis team, a steamy romance with a hot, local park ranger—Ash discovers that a group of gods and goddesses have mysteriously enrolled at Blackwood…and she’s one of them. To make matters worse, Eve has resurfaced to haunt Ash, and she’s got some strange abilities of her own. With a war between the gods looming over campus, Ash must master the new fire smoldering within before she clashes with her sister one more time… And when warm and cold fronts collide, there’s guaranteed to be a storm.
